"Pupae" in context

Pupae is the life stage after the larva of many insects, including butterflies, moths and flies. During the pupal stage, the body of the organism undergoes a transformation known as metamorphosis, where the body rapidly changes into its adult form. During this period, the pupa is largely inactive, but still must be protected by a hard shell from predators or environmental threats. In some species, the pupa remains in its cocoon until the adult form is ready to emerge. In other species, the pupal stage can last from several days to several weeks.
